Organization Assessment of SAATHI
In 2013, FDM took the lead to provide technical support to SAATHI for conducting its organization assessment and develop a strategic plan. The purpose of this organization assessment was to feed in the information gathered through assessment into the five-year strategic plan of Saathi. The focus of strategic plan was to consider the aspect of governance system of SATHI (includes issues related with board members, decision making strategies, organization structure), human resource (capacity building), finance and fund raising issues, monitoring and evaluation mechanism, knowledge management (documentation, communication, institutionalization of learning), networking, and sustainability. In order to do so, there was a need to scrutinize the overall organization system through organization assessment. FDM also developed result based job description of each staff under the new governance structure proposed for effective and efficient management of SAATHI.
